Much needed updates for Maestro Flash Cards

A new set of features are coming soon, based on feedback and reviews written in the app stores, plus a couple of bug fixes and required changes to be Windows 8.1 – compliant, and Windows 10 and Windows Phone 10 compatible.

Here’s a summary of what we are working on:

New Features

  • Quiz Mode
  • Ability to hide known Flash Cards
  • Unification of Windows Store App and Windows Phone App

Windows Store App – specific features

  • Keyboard support for users without touch screen (in some app modes)
  • Storing preferences and learning progress in device

Windows Phone App – specific features

  • Spanish translation

Expected Release Timeline

  • Windows Store App – March 2015
  • Windows Phone App – April 2015


What about iOS and Android?

People keep asking about these other platforms, and development for iOS and Android is expected to resume planning after the Windows and Windows Phone updates go live, so expect some news in Q2 2015, and potential releases in Q3 and Q4 this year, plus some other big news for the Maestro platform.



This upcoming update has bug fixes, and introduces a full translation to Spanish.

To use the application in Spanish:

1) If your Windows 8 language is already Spanish you don’t have to do anything.

2) If your Windows 8 language is anything other than Spanish, you will have to add Spanish to your language list, set it to your default language, logout and log back in. This will change your whole Windows 8 UI to Spanish.


Esta nueva versión arregla un par de problemitas e introduce la traducción a Español.

Para utilizar la aplicación en Español:

1) Si estás utilizando Windows 8 en Español, no tienes que hacer nada.

2) Si estás utilizando cualquier otro lenguage, tendrás que agregar Español a tu lista de lenguages en Windows 8, escoger Español como el idioma predeterminado, cerrar tu sesión actual y entrar de nuevo a Windows 8.

The app offers an elegant and fun approach to learning music notes and music notation that resembles real Flash Cards.

We’d love to hear what you think, so please let us know.
